After back-to-back promising seasons for Quintin Morris in 2018 and 2019, his numbers dwindled after only playing in five games during his final season at Bowling Green. As the No. 1 tight end on the Falcons' depth chart, he proved to be a versatile piece that was constantly a go-to target for the team's offense. Even though his numbers decreased as a senior, he showed lots of qualities of an encouraging tight end prospect. As a run blocker, Morris is able to provide versatility as he can satisfy duties from the in-line, wing, and flexed out positions. Used in multiple spots, he has experience as a blocker from multiple types of surfaces. In the passing game, his route tree was limited to a distinct group, but he’s fully capable of doing more. Locked into certain routes in the scheme, it’s easy to see his route-running skills and hands will enable him to eventually become a No. 2 tight end that can contribute in lots of different situations.    

Ideal Role: Developmental No. 3 tight end.

Scheme Fit: Anywhere he can be a No. 3 tight end that can be a spot player on passing downs in hopes of an expanded role as he reaches the tail end of his rookie deal.
